We're honored to receive the 2020 Subaru Love Promise Community Commitment Award. This award nationally recognizes Subaru retailers who are making the world a better place while demonstrating an outstanding commitment to supporting passions and causes in local communities.

The 2020 Subaru Love Promise Community Commitment Award

What is the Subaru Love Promise?

The Subaru Love Promise is just that.  A promise.  It is a promise to do right by our community by partnering with nonprofit education, health, community, environment, and animal organizations, to set Subaru apart through our deeds and the deeds of our partners.  To be unlike any other car company by doing what is right and good just for the sake of doing it.

Whether they live in our homes or in the wild, Subaru is committed to keeping all animals safe and healthy.

A partner since 2008, Subaru has donated over $28 million to the ASPCA and through Subaru Loves Pets has helped support the rescue, transport, adoption and well-being of over 230,000 animals across the country. 


Loving the environment means more than loving the great outdoors. It means working to preserve it.

Since 2018, Subaru has partnered with TerraCycle.  Participating Subaru retailers collect hard-to-recycle trash that was headed to local landfills. We collect approximately 2 tons of this hard-to-recycle trash monthly, which will be converted to furnishings and other usable items and donated locally.


It’s our goal to make the pursuit of knowledge available to as many minds as possible.

Since 2015 Subaru, in partnership with the American Association for the Advancement Science, donated over 277,600 award-winning science books.  In addition, through our partnerships with Staples and we supported teachers and students with donations of S400,000 in gift cards and school supplies. 


In a perfect world, hunger would be history and hope would be commonplace. We believe a perfect world is possible.

In 2020, Subaru and its retailers made a donation to Feeding America to provide 50 million meals to help feed people in need during the COVID-19 crisis,* making meals available at 199 local food banks across the country.
*$1 helps provide at least 10 meals secured by Feeding America on behalf of local member food banks. 


We should all have a chance to lead a healthy life. We’re aiming to give as many people that chance as we can.

Since 2016, Subaru and its retailers have partnered with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) to donate over 167,000 blankets and 21,500 arts & crafts kits and reached nearly 150,000 patients in more than 780 hospitals nationwide.

School Snacks for Central Elementary School  –  Carol B

With the start of school just days away, Courtney Craner, a 4th grade teacher at Central Elementary in Nampa, contacted Team Subaru about a project she was working on called "Snack Stash" to collect snacks for the start of the school year. She said that many of their kids rely on meals and snacks from the school every day, and would be starting their school year with food insecurities because they weren't sure where their next meal would come from during the summer months. Team Subaru was happy to help Courtney with her project and on Friday, August 16th delivered healthy snacks to the school just before the students returned to start their first day of the school year.

Team Subaru and St. Vincent de Paul Car Donation  –  Ashlee W

Today I had the great pleasure of speaking with 27 year old Mariel Zuspic, the winner of the St. Vincent de Paul car raffle (car being donated by Team Subaru of Nampa). Mariel has a truly amazing story and was in a need of a car. She was previously driving a 2001 Jeep Cherokee that was given to her after he uncle passed. “It was a great car that my twin sister [Emily] and I used to go back and forth to college in Spokane,” Mariel stated. She enjoys having a big car because she works at a non-profit in Boise that requires her to haul big things around in. Roughly two winters ago, she turned on the heat and debris came flying out. When she took it in, the mechanics said that there was a mouse nest around the vents. The mechanics told her that they could not clean it out and they would need to order a new part for it. She went numerous weeks without heat in the winter because of her busy schedule. A bit later, she started having battery problems. Mariel’s battery died six times! When she took it in this time, the mechanics said the same thing, a mouse nest around the engine. The mice had been chewing on the wires and cords of the battery. At this point she knew she needed a different car. She heard about the raffle and decided to enter. Out of 600 entries, hers got picked. “Thank you Team Mazda Subaru and St. Vincent de Paul for this incredible opportunity! Never in a million years did I think I would win! This gift is truly life changing!” Mariel said. Emily, her twin sister, will be getting her Jeep after it gets fixed up. Congratulations Mariel and enjoy your brand new jasper green 2019 Subaru Forester!

Sharing the Love with those who serve  –  Carolyn B

Team Subaru was very pleased to present Ron Overton with a 2006 Chrysler Town & Country van on Friday, 5/10/19. It was brought to Team's attention by Operation Grateful Hearts that Ron, a disabled veteran, had no reliable transportation to get to and from his medical appointments after his truck broke down and left him stranded. Ron, who was just released from the hospital this week, was very grateful for the donation and having the peace of mind of knowing that he can get where he needs to go without having to depend on others to accommodate him. What an appropriate coincidence that this event would take place during Military Appreciation month and provide Team Subaru with an opportunity to show our love for our veterans.


Central Elementary called ROB AND AARON at Team Subaru requesting GARDENING SUPPLIES for their AWESOME elementary school in Nampa. ROB AND AARON then sprang into action to get Ms.Courtney and the great staff at Central Elementary help with the supplies they need to grow a huge and healthy garden at the school.

Michael and Mommy are Butterfly Heroes!  –  Maranda R

As a kid, I remember driving around the back side of Lizard Butte in Marsing, Idaho looking for milk weed and Monarch Caterpillar eggs that I could take home. I really enjoyed feeding the caterpillars once they hatched. I loved making sure that they had food so that they could grow and I could watch them make their cocoons. My favorite part of all of this was when the butterflies would emerge from their cocoons and I got to release them back into the wild. I was excited to hear that Subaru's Love Promise for the month of April was supporting the Butterfly Heroes Program. I decided to be a Butterfly Hero myself and share with my son the story of these majestic creatures. We were saddened to learn that there is a rapid decline in the Monarch Butterfly population. After learning about the wonderful journey that the Monarch takes each year, my 5-year-old son Michael thought it would be a great idea to plant our milkweed seed in our family garden so that the Monarchs would have a place to lay their eggs and to help attract other pollinators to our garden at the same time.Michael and I had a great time learning about the Monarchs and helping them fight the rapid decline in their population. We cannot wait for our milkweed to grow, so that we can watch for the Monarchs Butterflies come to visit. Thank you Subaru, the National Wildlife Federation and Team Subaru of Nampa for this great opportunity to be Butterfly Heroes!
